About the Belltown Antique Car Club
The Belltown Antique Car Club is one of the oldest independent, non-make specific clubs dedicated to antique car owners and enthusiasts in Connecticut. It was founded in 1968 in East Hampton, Conn., a town in the east-central part of the state whose history is linked to the manufacture of brass bells (hence its nickname, Belltown).

THIRD WEDNESDAY CRUISE NIGHT
When: The third Wednesday Night of Each Month, April through September!
Where: Colchester Green
Details: Beginning in April and running to September, Good Times Motoring Club holds a cruise on the Green every third Wednesday (fourth Wednesday in case of rain) on the Colchester Town Green. The show begins around 5:00 PM and lasts until after sunset. Colchester has several good restaurants, a classic hot dog stand and interesting boutiques for dining and shopping before the show. The show is limited to all antique, unique and specialty cars and trucks with NO FEE to show or for admission. We will be accepting voluntary donations as you enter the Green to help us support the charities of our choice. We keep a family atmosphere without burnouts or alcohol. Food and donations go to support club and local charities.
NOTICE We regret that no vehicle 1988 and newer will be allowed on the Green. Due to overcrowding and concerns by the Town, we had no choice but to change our venue. Thank you for your understanding.
Due to limited space on the green GTMC reserves the right to deny any vehicle admission to the Green. Personnel on duty at the entrance have the final decision to grant or deny access.
